We’re very excited about this new print.
This painting was initially inspired by a trip to the Berlin Zoo, where Martinus encountered a hippo enclosure, where one could view the hippo from above and below the water.
As the illustration progressed, the hippo evolved into a manatee, and new animals were added.
Hank Williams’ song Jambalaya also served as inspiration.
We filmed the process from pencil illustration to final painting.
